Staff review by
Dream Taster
If you are unfamiliar with Obscura, the German combo plays an unfettered brand of progressive technical death metal similar in style to bands like Cynic, Gorod and Necrophagist. With three key members gone since their last opus Omnivium—Christian Münzner [guitars], Hannes Grossmann [drums] and Jeroen Paul Thesseling [bass] all left after 2011—the band had to be rebuilt.

Meh. Like someone said about Alkaloid, only style, no substance and the most boring production one could ever imagine.

Sounds like something I would say. From what I've heard of this that's definitely true.

Υou've sold your human essence to the cold world of dead and empty things... You're SOLD!

Man, it took me about half a year to recover from how dull this album is.
And the tears that we will weep today
Will all be washed away
By the tears that we will weep again tomorrow

China was a neat
Sounds as good an album as Obscura can possibly make. Really significant bass guitar, clinical drumming but still put down by the boring songwriting. Or maybe I just grew out of this style I guess. Decent album but not for me.
